International Roadcheck 2019

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

The CSVA International Roadcheck will take place June 4-6, 2019. During this time, CSVA-certified inspectors will be stationed throughout North America to conduct inspections on motor vehicles and drivers. The focus for this year's International Roadcheck is steering and suspension. The 37-step entire inspection will include matters related to the vehicle, the driver, and the cargo safety and securement. The inspector may conduct the Level II Walk-Around Driver/Vehicle Inspection, Level III Driver/Credential/Administrative Inspection or Level V Vehicle-Only Inspection.

Inspections will also include:

  • Brake systems

  • Fuel systems and oil leakage

  • Exhaust systems

  • Lighting devices

  • Steering mechanisms

  • Tire condition

  • Wheels, rims and hubs

  • Windshield wipers

Items drivers need to be prepared to provide at the inspection include:

  • CDL

  • Medical Examiner's Certificate and Skill Performance Evaluation Certificate (if applicable)

  • Driver's record of duty status and vehicle inspection report(s) (if applicable)

  • HOS documentation

  • Motor Carrier Registration

Drivers will also be inspected on seatbelt usage, sickness, fatigue and apparent alcohol and/or drug impairment.

If no critical vehicle inspection violations are found during a Level I or Level V Inspection, a CSVA decal will be applied to the vehicle, as proof that the vehicle successfully passed inspection. If an inspector identifies a critical vehicle item violation that meet the conditions of the North American Standard Out-of-State Service Criteria, the inspector can render the vehicle out of service until violations are corrected.

For you to have a successful inspected experience, make sure you're prepared beforehand.
